between our armed forces. and from that demanding combat environment this kandahar, we transitioned two years ago to operation attention to train -- to the training mission devoted to supporting nato's main strategic objective, that of preparing the afghan national security forces to take responsibility for afghanistan's security by themselves. since 2011 canada has been the second largest contributor to the nato training mission after the united states. and and as kathleen said, roughly 950 of our troops focused on giving the afghans the tools they need not only to fight the taliban and affiliates, but also to train their own forces in this effect. indeed, afghan forces are now not only planning and leading most security operations across the nation, but 90% of all military training in afghanistan is now being conducted by the afghans themselves. that's a strategic and operational success, one that will pay dividends over the long term by helping insure that afghan forces can sustain their progress and ultimately help prevent afghanistan from ever again becoming a safe haven for terror
